Desk quality is also extremely important. Office desks usually cost a lot more than writing or other more standard desks and as such you want to make sure that you get something that will last and stand the test of time. While someone buying a desk for their home may have no problem replacing a desk every year, it is highly unlikely that a boss would buy a desk knowing that he or she will have to replace it just a year later. So what factors should you look for in a desk to check its quality? The first thing is to check the drawers. Pull them out and see how far they extend. Quality desk drawers should be able to extend out far enough to ensure there is enough space inside, but more importantly the drawer should not flex or bend when fully extended.
You cannot just jump in and start painting without priming it first. Apply a layer of primer to the desk after sanding it and leave it for a day to let it dry properly. Once the primer dries, you can go ahead with the painting. For painting you would need a paint brush and roller. Apply the paint properly and since the desks require a second coat of painting, let the first coat of paint dry. Once it dries, add the second coat of paint. To give the desk a bright and polished look, apply varnish after painting it. Once you are done with this process, your desk will be ready to use. Though painting an old office desk does not call for skill, if you are not sure about your expertise, get a professional for the job.
Desk Size: Naturally, the size of your office desk will depend on the available space. If that is not an issue you should select a desk with sufficient space for your computer – most are laptops these days and take up a lot less space than they once did. If you do not have enough room for a separate printer table, then your desk will also have to accommodate that, plus a router and also don’t forget your personal working space!
Functional or Furniture? Is your home office desk fundamentally a piece of furniture or should its functionality be your main priority? Again, this may come down to whether you are running a genuine company or if the desk is simply for home use. There is no need for a functional item not to take the form of a beautiful piece of home furniture. In fact, many professional business desks would look perfectly at home in both a business and domestic environment. However, desks hand-made from solid oak, cherry or mahogany tend to be expensive, and more suited to the type of corporate finance that most individuals would find beyond them. The occasional domestic user would be reluctant to spend too much hard-earned income on a home office desk, and there are many good-looking desks available at economical prices that would look superb in a home office.
